-Tho ladles' raco on Armlstlco IViy
is . causing additional interest since
it has been learned that there may
be, at least flvo entries at the post
when the raco starts. At present
there are four entries, Anna Scott
having entered and will ride C. A.
Daggott's Champagne. Two other
entries are expected from Kilauca
but the committee has not been no
tified offclally yet. Another entry
that Is planning to ride is Mrs. Ro
salie Lovell of Llhuo, but she has
rot named her mount. If there are
moro than four entries the raco
will bo run in two heats.
Tho other big raco of the day
will bo the five-eighths in which
Silver Dust, Peggy, and Fireman
will try to take the measure of the
veteran Dinner Bell. There are not
a few racing fans who believe that
Silver Dusi will make a showing
against Sakamoto's stallion while
it would cause no surprise if Fire
man, who is entered by Rapozo,
would show his heels to both other
.The two baby races are bringing
together a bunch of likely looking
colts and Jio one is making any pre
dictions in regard to the winner.
4' Kitty Kuhlman's Manu Kauai, Fer
liandcs' Suante II, Forty Winks from
the Walpouli stables and Antone
Rels' Freckles will battle for honors
in this race.
The steer tying will be the main
tfeaturo of tho afternoon's sports
and there should be quite an Improve
ment in the time as the committee
lias decided to use the Pendleton
round-up rules which only allow tho
Hteer a 50 foot start Instead of the
CO yard start allowed last year. An
other change in tho rules will bo
in regard to the catches. This year
-the horns, half a head or neck will
bo tho legal catches.
There will be eight entries in the
steer tying this year and with an
entry from Maui this should glvo
the contest additional interest. Ka
pahu Mil, the Kekaha entry, will
again be in the contest and with
u littlo better luck should give a
good account of himself. Charley
Huddy and John Mallna, tho other
two men to finish outside the mon
ey will also bo on hand to regain
honors lost last year. .Kainapau,
Lindsay and Purdy, who finished in
tho order named have also signified
their Intention to go after tho prlzo
money again this year. Just who
the other entry will bo Is not known
but according to tho committee it -Is
a roper who will mako the other
contestants step if they hope to
beat him out.
, Three teams have entored tho
cowboy sports so far and at least
three more teams aro expected bo
fore the entries close. The commit
tee has decided to glvo cash prizes
this year and $100 will be given the
winning team. There will be a slight
change in the rules In regard to tho
tug of war and tho stake race. Each
team will enter only one horse in
these events, but it must be ono
of the horses that has been ridden
in the potato race, and must also
be used in the relay race. Tho
mounted tug of war last year was
considered too dangerous to repeat
so a single horse pull will be used

PLANS CALL FOR BERTHS FOR
TWO VESSELS AT THE
The Llhuo plantation start d
dredging operations at. Ahuklnl yes
tirday, tl.e dredge having arrived
from Honolulu .tho latter pnrt of
Tho portion of the harbor to be
dredged Is that part along the
v.harf from the mauka end to tho
breakwater. It Is tho Intention of
thai . plantation to' dredge this pnr-,
Hon of the harbor to a depth .of
30 feet. About lGOJJO yards of mu;
terlal will be moved In doing the
work. ' ,
Tho object of th,o dredging is to
enable the terminal company to
berth two vessels at tho wharf hi
the same time. Heretofore whenov
er there was a coal or lumber boat
In Ahuklnl it was necessary to
move them out into the stream so
as to allow the Inter-Island steanv
er to dock nnd work their cargoes.
When the Iuter-Island steamer was
ready to move out tho other boat
would be In the way and this would
necessitate considerable jockeying
on the part of the pilots-
With the new system all that
will be necessary will be to move
the coal boat up the wharf toward
the breakwater while tho Inter-Is-land
is working the cargo and
when this is over the coal boat can
be moved back with little or no
A clam-shell dredge with a bottonv
dump barge Is tho equipment that
the Hawaiian Dredging Co. has on
the job. The material will be dump
ed out at sea, the company having
a tug here to do the necessary tow
ing. Ono of the important foatures of
the work Is the fact that when the
dredging Is completed steamers as
lar;e as the Mauna Kea and the KI
lauea will be able to dock at the
Ahuklnl wharf. According to rumors
ono of the objections of the Inter
Island In sending one of the steamers
to Kauai when tho new steamer ar
rives was the fact that they could
not dock at Ahukini. This dredging
will remove the last objection that
tho Inter-Island has in giving Kauai
a real steamer on this run.
Tl.e Hnwaiiau Dredging Co. start
ed dredging operations for tho Ll
huo plantation yesterday, the dredge
having arrived from Honolulu the
latter part of last week.
CELEBRATE FLAG DAY

held at the various camps about

POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT TO
IMPROVE THE MAIL
Negotiations started sometime ago
by Wjilmea Stables Ltd., present con
tractors, with tho postofflco depart
ment to give postofflces from Knpaa
to hiumlul the s.imo sorvleo that l.as
been given to all other postofflces
on this Island are now believed to
bu nearly completed, and official an
nouncement of tho change will prob
uhly be forthcoming soon. For more
than two years the postofflco de
partment has given postofflces from
Llhuo to Kekaha flvo round trips u
week, whereas all offices on this
sido of tho Island received but
three, for no apparent reason except
that there are but four offices on
this side to seven on the other.
Tho present schedule for three
round trips a week makes it neces
sary that the public on this side
either do without a dispatch of their
outgoing mail for Hondlulu on Wed
nesdays, or1 to leave mail 'arriving
on Thursday at Llhuo until Friday.
The first alternative, which Is more
beneficial, to the service than the
latter, has been adopted, and ' the
public from Kapaa to Hanalel' Is
depending upon private citizens or
to the willingness of the postmasters
themselves, to carry the Thursday
mail from Llhuo at their own ex
pense. Kawaihau offices have so far
suffered only a short delay as their
mall has so far nlways been deliv
ered by private parties, or by the
postmasters themselves without re
muneration, but Kllauea and Hnna
lei have not been so fortunato on
account of the great distance. It
therefore behooves citizens and tax
payers on this side of the island
to make an effort to Induce Uncle
Sam Ai give them service that Is at
least equal to that at present given
on the western side, unless tho
present contractors succeed In doing
MOKIHANA DRAMATIC CLUB

Older heads do not claim such a

Jarrett Is expected to poll his

the belief Is that If ho does carry

to offset Kllauea and Makawell,
